About me

Named one of the Most Influential Women in Travel in 2023 by TravelPulse, Carolyn Ray took over JourneyWoman in 2019, continuing the legacy started by Evelyn Hannon, who created the world's first solo travel resource for women in 1994. Together with her team of experienced travel writers, Carolyn creates insightful, engaging content that celebrate the wisdom of women over 50 and the joy of discovery that purposeful travel brings. As the largest website and community for women over 50 in the world, JourneyWoman's writers, readers and partners are inspired to make our world a better place, with an emphasis on sustainable, equitable and accessible travel for all women. Carolyn is Chair of the Society of American Travel Writers (SATW) Canada and a TTC Herald.
